http://www.autosportz.com/rims_kyokugen_lugs_locks.htm

Kyokugen wheel lugs, every lug needs a key, no doubt the way to go.

I have the Toyota locks (came with the car), there cool but its just one key lug. Another down side is there not silver more of a brass color, no good for wheels with out center caps.

Heres another link for toyota locks, looks like there silver:

Also, in case anyone else is getting those Kyokugen wheel locks, they're a little cheaper here ($56 shipped, compared to $58 shipped at the above link):

One site I saw said not to use air tools, only hand turning. That's probably what caused any type of stripping that you're referring to.

Were you hand turning them or did you use an air compressor?

I Volk makes some, but they're $110 for 20 lugs spineyes Only four of them are locking nutts, but they use a seven side design. They come annodized (sp) black, red, blue.
